Located at the geographic center of the city of Portland, YARD is a 21 story mixed-use building that combines residential, commercial, retail, oï¬ƒce and parking.
Positioned in the rapidly changing central east side of downtown Portland, at the base of the iconic Burnside Bridge and skate park, the site presented a multitude of challenges, both at an infrastructure and cultural level.
As a podium + tower design, YARD connects seamlessly with the neighborhood via the intersecting streets and across the city skyline.
The podium at level 5 is open to the public, offering spas, co-working space and eco-roof encouraging Portlanders to take advantage of unprecedented views of the city.
Above the podium is a residential tower rotated along the river and oriented to maximize connections to the urban landscape to the west and dynamic mountain views to the east.
YARD is a catalyst project born of the city’s effort to revitalize entrepreneurial development. It’s the spark of a new neighborhood, a rare opportunity to remix pre-established elements (like the iconic Burnside Skatepark) with groundbreaking design and an underutilized riverfront location.
